This band. I can’t even put into words what their songs mean to me.
Just a little commentary from my nearly 19 year-old brother while watching Les Miz. I think he’s found his calling.
FYI: Start from the bottom right to read in order.
This is the best.
I really can’t explain how huge of a crush I have on Jennifer Lawrence.
my pickup lines got me NOWHERE this weekend.
HAHAHA, the most straight forward Mets player. And I mean “player.”
Last weekend I set out on a mission. A mission to see the newest addition of one of the greatest movie franchises of all time. I’m of course talking about the new Die Hard.
Sure, nothing quite measures up to the first 2 films in the series, but in my opinion ALL 5 of them are very good movies. A Good Day To Die Hard does more in the development of John McClane’s backstory, just in terms of tying some pieces together (mainly his family life). He has not lost any of his edge or smart mouth (yeah sure, the one liners aren’t quite on par with “No fucking shit lady! Do I sound like I’m ordering a pizza?!,” but then again, what is?).
There is a nice bit a respect paid to the original film, as well as some very interesting story development in the short run time (just over an hour and a half). The one spoiler I will give is to expect a familiar catch phrase.
Believe it or not, my obsession with the Die Hard franchise is relatively new. For whatever reason, I had never seen the original film until a few months ago (and now I feel like the first 22 years of my life were a total waste).
I’d give A Good Day To Die Hard a solid 3.5/5. Not the best in the series, but surely not the worst.
*Fun Fact: NONE OF THEM ARE THE WORST.

I came home from work today to find a package waiting for me on the front porch. I looked at the shipping label and screamed “IT’S YELLOWCARD DAY!” One of the things I absolutely love about pre-orders (besides the awesome extra content, t-shirts, posters, and autographs) is that sometimes they get to you a week before the album’s release date. This also happened to me with The Early November’s In Currents (which I actually had 2 whole weeks prior to the release date!).
Southern Air evokes a warm, summery aura from every single note of every single song, all the way to the serene album art. There is not a single song on this album that won’t make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. There are some great guest appearances as well (We Are The In Crowd’s Tay Jardine, All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth, and Hey Monday’s Cassadee Pope). I love that the guests don’t wear out their welcome by overshadowing Yellowcard vocalist Ryan Key, but rather bring a lot to the table by backing up his already strong performance.
No spoilers here. Experience the songs for yourself. If you like Yellowcard, you’ll love this album on par with Ocean Avenue. If you don’t know much about the band, this is a perfect introduction. Breathe in that Southern Air.
